About Kettle Falls Campground
Kettle Falls Campground is on the northern section of Lake Roosevelt and convenient to the town of Kettle Falls. The facility has a multi-lane boat launch, making it popular among boaters, fishermen and water sports enthusiasts. The Kettle Falls area is rich in the history of American Indians as well as the fur trade; campers can learn more at a park visitor center less than 10 miles away. Lake Roosevelt is a 130-mile lake on the Columbia River created by the Grand Coulee Dam. Named after President Franklin D. Roosevelt, it is part of the Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area and managed by the National Park Service. Natural Features: The campground is forested and overlooks Lake Roosevelt. Much of the water originates from glaciers and snow in the cold, high Canadian Rockies, although lake temperatures are pleasant to swim in during summer. The area is abundant with wildlife, including moose, elk, deer and bald eagles. Dozens of species of fish inhabit the lake, such as walleye, bass, rainbow trout, salmon and sturgeon; fishing for sturgeon is not allowed. Recreation: The boat launch is directly within the facility, so many recreation activities can take place from the campground, including boating, fishing and water skiing. However, the lake is not very accessible to swimmers since there is a rocky descent from the campground to the water. Facilities: There are approximately 29 first-come, first-served sites designated in this campground; others may be reserved. The facility is conveniently located near the town of Kettle Falls and within 10 minutes of grocery stores and other amenities. The visitor center is also in town. Nearby Attractions: The historic St. Pauls Mission, which is run by the National Park Service, is located about two miles from campground. Also in the area are Fort Colville and the Hudson Bay Company Post on the Upper Columbia. St. Pauls Mission. Sherman drive, a scenic loop, is nearby.

Paid $18 per night but starting October 1st the fee is reduced. I would check the website. Great for fishing. Overlooks lake roosevelt!
First to Review
This campsite is very well priced and the water is very clear to swim in (somewhat cold). My only complaint is that there is a lot of mosquitoes but it's not a problem if you bring a lot of bug spray. Gorgeous place.
